  • Enum Constant Details


      public static final LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement UNRELATED
      Enumeration value indicating the two components are visually unrelated and will be placed in the same parent. For example, groupings of components are usually visually separated; the constant UNRELATED is used for this.
    • INDENT

      public static final LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement INDENT
      Enumeration value indicating the distance to indent a component is being requested. For example, often times the children of a label will be horizontally indented from the label. To determine the preferred distance for such a gap use the INDENT type.

      This value is typically only useful with a direction of EAST or WEST.
